Happy 1st Birthday!!

Our baby girl is 1! How did that happen??? It both flew by and felt like such a long time. There is that feeling of how did we live without her? She is such a pure treat to be around and we love to be with her! How can you not??? Just look at her face!
She is always so full of joy and character. I don't know how we made it before she was in our life. What a pure pleasure it has been to get to be her mommy.

For her first birthday, we let her let loose a bit. Well... actually, we just took awesome staged photos ;-)
Cheers and Happy Birthday, sweet girl! We love having you in our family!!

encounter of the first and second kind

OK, so since we found out that we are battling our first bilateral ear infection as of today... let's think of some happier (well, kind of) times. Our FIRST encounter with Santa went well. Our second encounter with Santa went as follows:
(Santa came to our house for Christmas Eve... we were so lucky!)

See- these times were happier for Bobby, Santa and I. Maybe not happier for Daphne.

A girl's best friend

Daphne's all time best friend these days is her favorite monkey.
I give monkey's nose 6 more months before she officially bites it off from all of her kisses...
I printed these pictures off and now she not only loves monkey, but she loves the pictures of monkey. It's quite sweet, really.

breaking the silence

The silence from this blog was deafening! I am so sorry for the long delay. One would think that with not working and being around Daphne all the time for almost three weeks, I would have kept this updated... but alas, I guess I keep up with blogging when I'm on full steam- with work, school and life... SO- I vow to catch you up with an assault of Daphne pictures.

As you can expect, she is into everything these days and it is so fun. Walking has opened up her world!

I hope your holiday was wonderful. We had a wonderful holiday season and I would love to repeat it... but alas, real life has re-begun. At least I took a disgusting amount of pictures to relive the fun.
Daphne had a wonderful Christmas. As you can tell she is just a little blessed and a little happy about it.

One of the happiest pictures of the holiday!!
Look at how much Daphne is Bobby's daughter in this shot. I love it!

I will make up for lost time, I promise... more blogs to come soon!
